    Theme-based ministry, sometimes called theme-based church, helps create multigenerational connections as people of all ages explore common themes in age-appropriate ways. Theme-based ministry extends faith development beyond Sunday morning. Families can continue the conversation in the car ride home or over the dinner table; small groups that meet during the week can go deeper with the theme.

    If your congregation longs to:

    • Offer worship experiences with depth
    • Ensure a balance of theological and religious learning
    • Better integrate spiritually connected programming across the lifespan
    • Weave a central thread throughout all church programming
    • Build a cohesive theological understanding
    • Find common language and common symbols
    • Embrace a practical theology you use in everyday life
    • Meet the very real challenge of today’s busy families and intermittent church attendance
    • Give focus to your music and arts staff

    ...then theme-based ministry may be for you!? (Why do Theme-Based Ministry?)

    This model can be used with any sized congregation. We’ve seen it work in congregations with a worship attendance of 35 and in congregations with a worshipping community of 900+ with a full complement of theme programs taking place throughout the week.

    Theme-based ministry is happening?in more and more congregations throughout our movement as a powerfully engaging way of focusing the life of a congregation on monthly themes through worship, religious education, small groups and other activities.
